HP or hit points (Japanese: HP) is a stat that determines how much damage a unit can take. Some units on average have more health than others, such as knights. Weapons like Nosferatu and Runeswords can take HP from an opponent and give it back to the wielder.

Maximum HP (Japanese: 最大HP Maximum HP) is the maximum amount of HP that a unit can have at once. It can be increased by leveling up or using a Seraph Robe.


In most games, if all hit points are gone, the unit will then die, and not return to battle. If a main or special character has run out of hit points, it will result in a "Game Over." In other games that have Casual Mode, units return on the next map, however the defeat of main or important characters still triggers a Game Over.

Restoring HP

Items such as vulneraries and elixirs can restore health, while many staves also restore health. If a unit is standing on a certain structure (such as a fortress or gate) and you end the turn, they will recover a small amount of health.

Casting spells with HP

In a small number of Fire Emblem series games, Fire Emblem Gaiden and Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, mages and other magic-using classes use their HP to cast black and white magic. More powerful spells cost more HP to cast and mages become unable to use most spells when their HP is low.
